I was attending a conference in Llangollen, and had no knowledge of the hotels there - I booked the Royal by chance. First impressions were not favourable - the entrance lobby smells fusty. But the staff were very friendly and helpful. The hotel is very clean, and the breakfasts (the only meals I took there) very high quality. However, although...

I had booked to stay here over the new year, but cancelled after reading the reviews. Out of curiosity I called in with my partner when we were in the area. The outside of the building is extremely shabby and in need of repair. On entering, the smell of damp hits you in the lobby/reception area and the decor is...

I suppose this hotel was grand once. Well, not anymore...the staff is very friendly, the breakfast is fine and the views are beautiful but the hotel is dated, the rooms not clean enough, beds were so bad I woke up sore because it felt like I was lying directly on the springs. The entrance hall smells. A good carpet cleaner...

We have stayed in several locations in Llangollen over the years, but this hotel is the best. Clean, comfortable beds and a fantastic breakfast. And last but not least friendly staff. Thank you for a wonderful stay. We will definitely be back.

I stayed here as I was working nearby the following day, some reviews said that the rooms needed updating but to be honest mine was nice and clean and the only downside was that the bathroom could have done with updating but still clean. Everything was fine when I hooked in at reception however when I came to settle my...

Booked this hotel as a gift for my husband, he always wanted to go to 'Corn Mill' restaurant for a meal. The Royal looked perfect with the river views (if you lucky to get a room on that side of the hotel - we where). First impressions, smelt musty - but for an old building this is to be expected....

Staff friendly ,Hotel needs upgrading but if your after somewhere to just sleep then it's ok. Breakfast was decent , plenty of sightseeing in the area and cheap beer , there also a couple of new style restaurants if you're after a bit of upmarket cuisine.

Hotels need to provide a comfortable bed, good nights sleep and decent shower as the bare minimum in my opinion and sadly this hotel missed the mark on all three. Firstly we had to search around for over 10 minutes for someone to check us in, we did not arrive at an unreasonable time (5:30pm). I understand that sometimes it...

Stayed here on a Saturday night. Good price had single and double room. Hotel was fully booked. Lovely and warm on arrival. In fact heating in room was on all night but opening the window solved that. Plenty of hot water and comfy cosy room. It is an old hotel with charm don't expect spotless modern interior. Receptionist was polite...
